About

Biography

As a pediatric psychologist, I treat a range of conditions in children and adolescents. These include disruptive behaviors, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, depression, and impulse-control and movement disorders such as Tourette’s syndrome. I also help youths who have problems with social and coping skills.

I was inspired to pursue my career when I was growing up and saw the impact that marital and family conflicts, trauma, and difficult life experiences had on my friends and peers. I wanted to help families be happier and healthier. My training showed me that intervening early in a child’s life can build resiliency and protect mental health for future living and success.

In my practice, I offer a patient- and family-centered approach. I encourage my patients and their families to develop treatment goals that are important to them. I help them use their strengths to improve areas of weakness and aspects they wish to improve.

I use evidence-based practices that are proven to be effective. I also stay abreast on newer and promising treatment options. I treat my patients on a personalized basis, recognizing individual differences and special family circumstances, as well as cultural background.
